on the road

For the first time in over 15 years, I have a bike! It is my birthday present from the lovely Patsington and I got it on Saturday. I rode it home from the bike shop (only a mile, most of which is a bike lane), which was grand, and then decided to cycle to Blackrock yesterday to see how long it would take to get to work. It was the first time I'd hit the (main) road in a very long time, but there was hardly any traffic so it wasn't too nerve-wracking and I was feeling rather pleased with myself. This morning, however, was another story. Yesterday was mild and balmy with typical Sunday traffic; today was wet and windy with typical Monday morning traffic, and I'm afraid to admit that at one stage I was so freaked out by the huge articulated lorries zooming past me on the narrow twisty road that I got on the path and sort of scooted along at a walking pace for a while. So my new cycling career was not an unqualified triumph. But hopefully I'll get less nervous soon and will survive my commute unscathed....
